Harrison Ford, 78, injures shoulder filming fight scene for new Indiana Jones movie

Actor Harrison Ford has injured his shoulder while rehearsing for a fight scene for the new Indiana Jones movie.

Production of the fifth film in the franchise will continue while “the appropriate course of treatment is evaluated” for the 78-year-old actor.

“The filming schedule will be reconfigured as needed in the coming weeks,” Disney said in a statement.

The movie’s release date has been postponed several times.

Disney currently plans for it to debut in July 2022 after production started earlier this month in London.

Ford first played Indiana Jones, the fedora-wearing archaeologist and adventurer, in 1981 in Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

Three other movies followed in 1984, 1989 and 2008.

The new instalment co-stars Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen.

In 2014, Ford broke his leg while filming Star Wars: The Force Awakens when a hydraulic door on the Millennium Falcon fell on him.
